THE INFLUENCE OF COMPUTER SCIENCE EDUCATION ON NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT: PROBLEMS AND PROSPECTS

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

 

1.1 Background of the study

In the globalized world, technology has become the in-thing as countries and organizations devise means of gaining a competitive edge over the others. In view of this, secondary school education system in Nigeria needs to be tailor-made to suit this endeavor. Computer is playing vital role in modern life. Computer science education has great importance because the use of computer has reached almost all spheres of life.

 

We live in a fast-moving world where almost everything must come instantly to us. In this computer era, we depend on the computer to help us complete tasks, and to solve problems. Computers are used in various fields like business, pharmacy, music, education, engineering, defense, transportation, and cooking as they help to ease certain tasks, provide information faster, and speed up the work. Wherever you go whether it is a mechanic’s shop or a fast food restaurant, some form of technology and computers are being used. It may be a computerized cash register or the machine that cleans out your engine but it is a computer and everyone needs basic computer skills to function in today’s job market.

 

Development in science and technology has brought into lime light the indispensable roles of computer in the area of information technology as a new instructional system. The incursion of the electronic computer system into the educational parlance, according to Sherman (2005) provides the wherewithal to solve teaching and learning problems even more rapidly and accurately than hitherto conceived. This has eventually made the computer system the doyen of humanity as it continues to exert greater acceptance. Computer, according to Jayesimi (2004) has become the “nowology” in our society and possibly futuristic years ahead. In schools, computers are widely used, and the need for computer technology and literacy in the educational system has become more relevant. Computer has been found to be an effective device for presenting an instructional programme. According to McCormik (2003) computers can be used to diversify, develop and improve the pedagogical relation of teaching and learning. Also, technological development can only be enhanced through proper acquisition of scientific knowledge which can only be realized through relevant training in Science, Mathematics and Computer Science Education. It was in this light that the Federal Government of Nigeria launched the National Policy on Computer Literacy at primary, secondary and tertiary level of education in 1987 with the following general aims:

 

  • For the computer to transform the school system, as there is increased merger between computer technology and communication.

 

  • To equip the individual or student with thorough understanding of the concept of computer in order to fit into the next century.

 

Learning about the computer basics followed by a practical experience of using a computer is the key to computer science education. As computers are widely used today, acquiring computer science education is the need for every secondary school student. By computer science education, we mean learning how the basic concepts related to a computer work, gaining the basic knowledge of computer operation, knowing about the basic components of a computer, the basic concepts behind the use of computers and knowing some of the elementary computer applications.

 

Computer science education is therefore the effort to make the generality of the people computer literate. Computer literacy means the ability to tell the computer what you want it to do and understands what the computer does (Ajibade, 2006). To be computer literate amounts to be able to read, write and speak the language of the computer. One can also define Computer science education as the amount of knowledge and skills acquired by an individual to perform a given task using a computer system. Expectedly, the knowledge and skills acquired in this area may be very high, high, low or very low, depending on the individual‘s exposure to computer facilities. Computer science education is of paramount importance to national development and it is on this premise that the government of Nigeria sought to introduce computer studies in the educational system from primary through to tertiary institutions. Today, computer technology in schools is one of the most far-reaching and fast growing developments in education. Like maize in a plantation during a storm, countries all over the world are bending towards the fad of computer science education (Joseph, 2004 & Macaulay, 2005).
